Cheen Retraction

(lack of projection)

Chin is a symbol of masculinity for men and sensuality for women.

Any negative mark, such as wrinkle and folds, may impair the sense of beauty.

By adjusting the proportion and projection of the chin it is possible to balance the facial features, thus enhancing the facial harmony.

Women must have a more delicate chin with less fullness concentrated in the central part:

enhancing the height at the central point may result in sharpening the face that will look thinner whilst increasing definition and femininity.  

Men, on the other hand, may have heaver features with a stronger chin.

A prominent but balanced in height and width chin project a strong masculine look.


Filler injections may benefit patients with detruded chin, short chin or double chin. 

They may be an effective way of creating a pointed chin, colloquially known as a 'V-line', thus representing a valid alternative to invasive surgical procedures with the advantages of being reversible, non-invasive, complication-free and with no need for recovery period.

With the introduction of newer fillers, a higher performance, longer lasting and natural results are expected.
